Monarch Dental Kicks Off Share a Smile Food Drive in the Fayetteville Community
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Nov. 6, 2018
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Monarch Dental® location in Fayetteville, Arkansas is joining forces with Feed Communities to collect nutritious food items to be distributed to people in need. The Share a Smile Food Drive is already underway!
Currently, one in five Arkansans struggles to provide enough food for their family. And 25 percent of the children in this state have limited access to adequate food. Monarch Dental aims to make it easier for people to get the support they need, whether that means affordable dental and orthodontic care or necessary staples to stock their pantry. By turning the Fayetteville office into a Share a Smile Food Drive drop-off point, Monarch Dental is making it easier than ever for area residents to make a positive impact on the lives of their neighbors throughout Northwest Arkansas. In an effort to encourage even more people to participate in the food drive, Monarch Dental will be offer anyone who donates five or more non-perishable food items a choice of one of three different discount opportunities.
- Free exam and X-rays (available to new patients)
- $100 off dental services
- $500 off braces
"All of us at Monarch Dental have strong connections to the communities we serve," notes Dr. Richard Smith. "We believe that no one should be left hungry any time of the year, and we're proud to stand together with Feed Communities to gather much-needed food for our neighbors in need."
Last year, the Monarch Dental office in Fort Smith, Arkansas hosted a food drive that resulted in 8,000 pounds of food donations. The Fort Smith office has challenged Fayetteville and several other offices across the state to beat this number this year.
"Thanks to the generous donations from great local partners like Monarch Dental, we're continuing the fight against hunger and getting food into the hands of those who don't have enough to eat," said Carol Wright of Feed Communities.
To make a person smile this season and earn valuable discounts of dental and orthodontic treatments, bring five or more non-perishable food items to the Monarch Dental Fayetteville location (637 E. Joyce Boulevard). For more information on the discounts offered and a complete list of the most needed food items, visit our blog post for more info on the items needed.
